Sick Building Syndrome
Sick Building Syndrome
Sick Building Syndrome describes ill health people suffer when exposed to certain ‘unseen’ elements in a particular area. Think about the amount of time you spend in any given environment for a lengthy period during the course of a day. What’s the correlation between these environments and people who experience compromised health?
Have you noticed how your body relaxes when you step outside into fresh air and natural sunlight at the end of the day? Take a deep breath and experience relief.
External and internal situations exist creating a compote of elements which either support abundant, healthy living, or create unnatural effects sickening the physical body. We all strive for ideal health. However certain physical conditions and environments exist causing people to experience chest constriction, headaches, eye strain, nausea and vomiting, depletion of vital physical energy leading to lethargy, melancholy, perhaps mild depression. Please agree; it’s hardly a great recipe to foster energized creativity.
Examining issues in daily exposure to these elements, external factors include:
Geopathic Stress – an unseen force existing where the earth’s natural vibration is distorted by weak electromagnetic fields created by subterranean running water, certain mineral concentrations, fault lines and underground cavities.
Land elevation and directional issues. Ancient disciplines like Vastu and Feng Shui are scientific knowledge based systems reading land patterns situating buildings in more advantageous alignment with the energy of geographic regions.
Building over old burial grounds is inauspicious. For some traditions, these are sacred grounds not to be disturbed. In most large cities thousands of sites of past dwellings and burial grounds exist. Think about the consequences from a moral, energetic, anthropological perspective of building over these sites in the name of progress.
Building structures and materials – large glass windows for example diminish nourishing energy and little protection against destructive energy. Type, size, design are important factors contributing to well being.
Internal Factors include:
- Toxic building materials, furnishings and carpeting
- Chemical cleaning solutions
- Poor fresh air ventilation
- Artificial lighting
- Over abundance of harmful electromagnetic radiation
External solutions: ongoing connections need to be forged between appropriate specialists, builders and developers. The science is vast but important to be conscious of. Consult Feng Shui specialists when choosing office and business locations. Geopathic specialists assess hotspots and apply specific remedies. Choose natural building and decorating materials.
- Keep your body moving, stretch and periodically focus on deep breathing
- Have access to ‘fresh’ air
- Lunch outside and walk
- Replace flickering fluorescent lights
- Use full spectrum lighting in your immediate office space
- Use natural non-toxic cleaning solutions; no chemical air fresheners
Be self aware and seek out natural solutions. Remember, health and wellbeing is important to live optimally and enjoy life’s benefits with your loved ones.
